Round 21 of the Hyundai A-League moves into its second half this weekend and fans can look forward to two engaging clashes.
Last week saw three games played as the league was slightly delayed in order to help Australia’s two participants in the AFC Champions League, Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory.
While this weekend’s matches may not have a big impact on the top six, there is plenty of pride to play for as the 2018/19 Season winds down.
Read on to find out how to watch all of this weekend’s Hyundai A-League action!
Brisbane Roar v Western Sydney Wanderers
Friday, 7.50pm (AEDT)
Both these teams will be on a high after some positive results in what has been a bleak season.
Brisbane put on the style as they ran out 5-3 winners over Central Coast Mariners in Gosford in their last outing.
Imports Alex Lopez and Eric Bautheac showcased their talent with some spectacular strikes and interim manager Darren Davies will be hoping they can do it on a more consistent basis, beginning Friday night.

The Wanderers meanwhile have put together a string of good results and backed up two straight wins with a last-minute equaliser against ladder leaders Perth Glory.
Markus Babbel will like his side’s chances of leaving Suncorp Stadium with three points and keeping alive their very faint finals hopes.
A win for the Roar would see them leap ahead of the Wanderers into eighth place.
Round 21: Brisbane Roar v Western Sydney Wanderers
Central Coast Mariners v Wellington Phoenix
Saturday, 7.50pm (AEDT)
While this match-up may not appear from a distance to have much of an effect on the final six, Wellington Phoenix needs to take three points to put the pressure back on the chasing Newcastle Jets.
The Nix currently sit in sixth position on the Hyundai A-League ladder on 28 points while the seventh-placed Jets are on 26.
While embedded in the top six for the majority of the season, Wellington are certainly not guaranteed post-season action and will expect nothing less than a win from their trip to Gosford.
The Mariners meanwhile have nothing but pride left to play for as they stare down the barrel of consecutive wooden spoons.
Mike Mulvey’s men suffered heartbreak the last time they met the Phoenix, giving up a two-goal lead to eventually fall 3-2 at Westpac Stadium.
With nothing to lose, the hosts may just give us another thriller!
